Jive Records are in the process of laying off staff members in the promotions department. The Sony Music’s label will be moving it’s biggest talent roster that includes Usher and Outkast to go under L.A. Reid at Epic Records. Other Jive artist such as Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake & P!nk will be heading over to RCA.
Ciara who’s been willingly and hoping to be released from Jive is also landing with Epic Records. She’ll be teaming up with the boss man who signed her first record deal for “Goodies“. As for Chris Brown, the debate is still up for his new label home. It’s being reported that Epic Records nor RCA are interested into having him as a client due to personal baggage. “He makes great music, but he has personal baggage. He’s in a long-term contract, but contracts are made to be broken.” If neither label groups don’t plan to grab Chris Brown, then someone else will. Talent overshadows.
